London man arrested for domestic violence

A London man was arrested Tuesday on domestic violence charges, according to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Tyler Morris, along with Deputy Gilbert Acciardo, were dispatched about 11 a.m. to a possible domestic disturbance on Howard Road. When deputies arrived at the residence, they learned a man and woman had been arguing when then the man reportedly destroyed some of her property. The man also grabbed the woman, slinging her into a front porch railing, which left red marks on her arm.

The man, Terry M. Engle, 37, of London, had left the house but was located a short time later on East Pittsburg Church Road, where he was arrested without incident.

Engle was charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence) and was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

London man arrested for DUI

A single vehicle crash landed a London man in jail on DUI charges Monday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root. Deputy Larry Parrott investigated the crash, which happened about 8 p.m. on Devil’s Neck Road. Parrott found a Jeep on its side and the road was blocked. The driver had left, according to the report.

Following an investigation, Parrott located the driver, Brian M. Overbay, 30, of London, on Adams Road. The deputy learned that Overbay had been drinking beer prior to wrecking the vehicle, according to the sheriff’s report. Overbay stated a “possum ran out in front of him causing him to swerve, and lose control, and wreck.”

 Overbay was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident, no insurance, and other traffic charges. He was also wanted on a Fayette County warrant for probation violation. He was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Two-vehicle crash results in arrests

Two people were arrested Sunday after a crash on Marydell Brock Road, according to Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Mikey Ashurst, along with Deputy Tyler Morris, arrested Todd Gray, 38 and Andrea House, 29, both of London, about 7 p.m. while investigating a two-vehicle crash. Gray was the driver of a Pontiac G6 car that was involved in the crash. He was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence, no plates on the vehicle, no insurance on the car, and numerous other traffic charges. In addition, he had an outstanding bench warrant from Laurel District Court for failure to appear in court, according to the sheriff’s report.

House was charged with public intoxication-controlled substances, second-degree disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. She also had an outstanding bench warrant from Laurel District Court for failure to appear in court.

Both were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Filing a false report lands two in jail

Filing a false report landed two people in jail Saturday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Daniel Grigsby, along with deputies Josh Scott and Mikey Ashurst, were dispatched about 11:30 p.m. to a complaint of a possible burglary in progress on Four Oaks Road north of London, according to the sheriff’s report. However, when deputies arrived and spoke to a man and women, they received conflicting accounts about what had happened at the residence. Deputies didn’t locate any intruders and, following an investigation, determined there had been no intruders. Instead, the deputies learned that Lukeshia N. Collett-Sowder, 40, of London, had smoked meth prior to calling 911. Anthony Vaughn, 38, of East Bernstadt, admitted he had smoked meth, taken pain pills and drank beer prior to the deputies’ arrival.

Vaughn was arrested and charged with falsely reporting an incident and public intoxication-controlled substances. Collett-Sowder was charged with public intoxication-controlled substances. Both were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

East Bernstadt woman charged with trespassing

An East Bernstadt woman garnered multiple charges after she entered a home on Radford Road Saturday, alarming its occupants, according to a Laurel County Sheriff’s report.

Deputy Robbie Grimes responded to the complaint about 6:30 p.m. about a woman who had entered a home where no one knew her.

When Grimes arrived, he located Samantha Robinson, 26 of, East Bernstadt, walking down Radford Road. He learned that she had walked up to a residence and, upon seeing the homeowner in the yard, ran inside the house. Once inside, Robinson was asked to leave by the homeowner’s wife. Robinson then left.

The couple said they didn’t know the woman. Grimes determined that Robinson was under the influence and arrested her. She was charged with first-degree criminal trespass and public intoxication-controlled substance. She was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Domestic violence results in arrest

A domestic violence complaint led to the arrest of a Lily man Saturday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Larry Parrott, along with Deputy Robbie Grimes, responded about 10 p.m. to a domestic violence complaint on Stone Road. When deputies arrived at the residence, they learned that Homer Nantz Jr., 54, of  Lily, had thrown a telephone at his father, which reportedly hit him in the head and resulted in a wound.

Nantz was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence) and was jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.
